Treat your tastebuds to an authentic Thai experience at Erawan Thai! Serving up fun and fiery Thai cuisine for over 20 years, owners Phil and Yupaporn bring the true taste of their country to Christchurch’s doorstep.

Whether you love spicy tom yum soup, silky curries or flavoursome noodles, there’s something for everyone at this family-owned restaurant. Combining locally-sourced produce and premium meat with authentic spices and ingredients from Thailand, their kitchen creates mouth-watering dishes that showcase their country’s best flavours.

Reviews

Food was great, wait staff were prompt and very friendly. The prices were less than other Thai restaurants where we have eaten, but the portions seems a little smaller also, so it all washes out in end.

This is the third time we have been here and it's still as good as the first time and will continue to eat here, well worth the time and effort to visit.

The fresh spring rolls were the best we have ever had. The service is top notch and I even got a call to say I had left my cardigan at the restaurant. I would recommend this as a fantastic place to eat.

Service was prompt and friendly. Food was beautifully cooked too. The meat was juicy, not overcooked and the vegetables were tasty and a little but crunchy. Just how they should be in my opinion. A lovely dinner.

From the moment we walked in we knew it was the right place to eat authentic Thai food. The smells from the kitchen were enough to get our tastebuds fired up for the banquet to come. The entrees were on point. Scallops were well cooked and large. The mains were perfectly flavoured, and decently spicy when asked for hot, coupled well with a cold Chang. Took us both back to our visits to Thailand. Highly recommended.

Great, considerate service. I know they were trying to do something as a point of difference but I prefer to have my Pad Thai ingredients all combined rather than assembled on the plate. Apart from that, nice restaurant, good ambiance easy parking

Gracious service and fresh food.
Money bags for entree were the best I've had.
My vegetarian sister had satay vegetables with rice which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had cashew chicken which was also nice.

On a cold wet evening a warm gas fire soon added to a good feeling. The tom yum soup was tasty and well filled with solids, the scallops on a hot plate were exceptionally large, tasty and perfectly cooked accompanied by crisp vegetables, the roti was different but enjoyable. With service prompt and charming this was an excellent Thai meal.

We had the most lovely meal here! Service was friendly, attentive and caring. The decor inside was gorgeous and we all found something to enjoy on the menu. The restaurant was very accommodating with a few dietary requirements we had. The food was delicious and all four of us enjoyed our dishes immensely, definitely among the best Thai we have had in Christchurch! Thank you for the lovely evening! :)

We ordered starters with drinks and only waited a few minutes before being served. Our mains arrived only minutes from the time our plates were cleared and everything tasted delicious. The quick arrival of our meal was perfect for us as we have a 1-year old so being able to relax, enjoy a scrumptious meal and be home again before 6.30 for bedtime was the cherry on top.

Dined at Erawan last weekend, Tom Yum soup was divine, my husband enjoyed his main, but my peanut sauce dish was not as tasty as I was expecting, although veges in this dish cooked to perfection. Overall an enjoyable evening and we will be back.

Beautiful venue and very attentive service. The food was delicious and very fresh. The steamed fish was fantastic - fiery hot and whole. We were warned on ordering that it was very hot and not to everyone's taste - I'm so glad we 'braved' it! We also had roast duck curry (with grapes and lychees!) and barbequed scollops in the most heavenly sauce. Very healthy portions, too. We will be back!
